Did you know... April 29, 2019


If a tenant is not complying with a term of the lease, the tenant can be served with a 10-Day Notice to Comply.  This notice is given to a tenant who is violating a term of the lease, such has having an unauthorized pet on the property. A specific clause of the lease must be referenced in the notice.  It is often difficult to prove a 10-Day violation.  Whether or not rent has been received is (typically) easily documented; whether or not the tenant is maintaining the yard is a matter of opinion.  The property is re-inspected ten days after the notice is served to see if the tenant corrected the violation.  Another violation of the same lease clause later in the term will require a new 10-day notice.
